Pinch back any cuttings that seem to be getting 'leggy' so that you encourage a bushy growth.

They should be OK until mid spring when you can pot them on singly into 3 inch pots as above or if they're ready and you live in a temperate area, put them into the garden where you want them to grow.


Miracle-Gro Aerogarden with Gourmet Herb Seed Kit

Indoor herb gardening is becoming very much the rage these days. You can just snip a few herbs off the stems, grab a tomato or chop a chilli while you're cooking. 

The indoor gardens look gorgeous in the house too with their lush green foliage and gentle background light.

The most trusted name in the market is Miracle-Gro and their flagship is the 6 (UK) or 7 (US) pod model - click on the flag to find them for your country. 


If you keep them indoors, they they will need hardening off prior to going outside in the Spring. This is quite simply, putting the plants outside during daylight hours to acclimatize them to the outdoors. Plant them outside after about four weeks or when the risk of frost has passed.

This could be the start of your plant or herb nursery – less than a year to establish stock to sell and you still have the stock plant, which will have very obligingly put on some growth for you take more cuttings again this year! Isn't Mother Nature wonderful?

If you have to transport cuttings, then take some plastic bags and pieces of paper with you. Take the trimmings from the plant and write on the paper what the cutting is – then as soon as possible, deal with the cuttings as above.

You should be OK for a couple of hours but take larger pieces so that you can trim down further – probably 5 inches or so of plant to trim back down to 3 inches when you’re able to deal with the cuttings.
